COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Community Outreach 2018-07-23T11:52:34+00:00

At General Fasteners Company, we join together to support
the communities where we live and work.

Our employees have big hearts!

Through their generosity and willingness to be involved,
GFC has helped hundreds of people in need.

Helping Children

Every child deserves the opportunity to live happy, healthy lives. We supported:

  • Blessings in a Backpack: we donated backpacks filled with supplies to an elementary school in Livonia, Michigan
  • St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital: our employees donated funds to help with the cost of medical care for St. Jude’s kids.
  • Red Nose Day: It was fun to raise money toward keeping children safe, healthy and educated through the annual Red Nose Day!

Providing Holiday Gifts

During the holidays, we select organizations that support families in need. Our gift donations help to make the holidays brighter for children and their parents. Recent donations went to:

  • DMC Children’s Hospital of Michigan
  • Children’s Leukemia Foundation of Michigan
  • Families stationed at the Selfridge Air Base in Harrison Township, Michigan

Food Banks / Disaster Relief

Our employees often donate their time and food to help out charities:

  • Gleaners Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan
  • Lighthouse of Oakland County

When Hurricane Harvey hit the Houston, Texas region, our employees came together and filled many large buckets with much-needed cleaning supplies. The buckets were given to:

  • DRAW (Disaster Relief at Work) who delivered them directly to those in need

Breast Cancer Fundraising

An estimated 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. It affects us personally or through someone that is close to us. GFC’s annual fundraising efforts support those women by donating toward breast cancer research through:

  • Susan G. Komen for the Cure
  • Breast Cancer Research Foundation
